Warm welcome

August 21, 2012

It’s a space I never get tired of looking at. Mainly, I think, because of the initial impression it gives you – it’s important to get it just right. What am I talking about? Hallways, of course!

Now, you may already have your hall nicely decorated, but don’t let that stop you – no one really needs a reason to redecorate, sometimes we do so simply because we can. After all, there’s nothing more fun for an interiors enthusiast than planning the next scheme.

Here’s a few beautiful ideas to whet your appetite.

Carpet in a hallway just looks so inviting and this Natural Look design by Carpetright is in a practical grey shade.

 

 

If you’re lucky enough to have a hallway of this size, why not go all out with the glamour? Statement furniture and an elegant glass pendant certainly create a room to be proud of.

This stair runner cosies up a plain painted staircase and is bang on trend for this year’s autumn/winter season.

Get creative and add a splash of colour by painting your banisters or banustrades. I love this quirky hall, and the green spindles look stunning when set against crisp white.

I love making a colourful entrance… although that does usually involve me turning up late with an unmatching pair of shoes. These colourful statement hallways are a much safer way to make your friends and family speechless!

Find hallway decorating inspiration from this video, you’ll find fantastic ways to add colour from your banisters to your stair risers!

Check out this cool kitchen!

July 27, 2009

Ok, I know it’s rude to stair (sorry), but I couldn’t help but double-take this fantastic kitchen from TrendsNow. I just love how they’ve incorporated the stairs into the basement kitchen area paying extra attention to the colour scheme. You’d have to remember not to leave plates/piping hot pans out, mind.

Apartment envy!

July 27, 2009

I could spend hours lusting after some of the homes in Freshome, especially this gorgeous London flat. I love the exposed brick and conservatory-style ceiling in the light and airy open-plan living space, the bedroom brings new meaning to the term ‘under-stair storage’, and the tree-house style hideaway would be perfect for a little office. I can’t believe it used to be a hospital! … i wonder if they’re looking to move?

Space-saving stairs

March 11, 2009

Didn’t think you had room for a staircase?  This staircase design means you can squeeze one in at a much narrower width than your standard staircase.

Split level

What do you think of this room I found on Apartment Therapy? They’ve really played with the different levels of the room. Box steps make great mini-staircases and every nook doubles up as storage space, I really like the desk, too.
